Our take

Formally playful and humorously observant, Joachim Trier’s Oscar®-nominated gem embraces with open arms the messiness of life at a crossroad. Winner of Cannes’ Best Actress Award for her star-making turn, the effervescent Renate Reinsve commands the screen–and our hearts–with her ravishing vivacity.
